  5. Hello - great recipe - I adapted it slightly, as I had a swede. I thought if radish why not swede and it was delicious - so good, swede like we have never had it before. Especially helpful was the comment "cook till the raw taste leaves" That made it very clear for me. I am english and had desiccated coconut in the cupboard so just used that and missed the urad dal as I didn't have it and have never quite understood the point of it. My partner was absolutely thrilled - we had it with chana dal and naan bread and yogurt and chutney. Prob. a very anglicised meal but we were happy! Thank you. Catherine
